Nurse and activist Vanessa Tijerina of Raymondville is running as a Green for Congressional District 15 in the Rio Grande Valley. In a different context on Labor Day, she spoke at the Latinos for Bernie rally in front of Joaquin Castro’s office, but she saw the light soon enough to run for office as a Green. Over 8,000 Twitter followers and well over 2,000 on a Facebook page. It’s an open congressional seat.
